​ The Power of Finding YOUR VOICE!

Have you ever been asked to define yourself? Who is Jackie? What makes you…YOU? One of my mentors hit me with this question the other day, and it rung in my ears and heart ALL day long. When you think about it, it really isn’t a new question, though is it? Haven’t we all been guilty at some point of moving through life asking other people this same question about ourselves? All because we were unsure of the true answer to the question? We may not have overtly just came out and asked, but we would be screaming this same question nonetheless, through our actions that were seeking validation or through compromises to feel more wanted or valued. All in all, everyone goes in pursuit of finding the answer to this question. Some may call it human nature but I truly believe it's God’s programming that causes this longing to know who we are and our voice.

I want to propose a prescription that will help eradicate several diseases all at once. Read More

Every Other Option Will Fail...

FAITH

Are you having a hard time completely trusting God with an area of your life? I've been there before! God used two ways to increase my faith. 1) He used "Faith Stones" and 2) He continuously surrounded me with people who had the gift of faith because it's infectious. 

Think of every time in your life when you didn't think there was any way for it to work out, BUT GOD worked it out anyway! That's a place to leave a faith stone! These stones are so powerful against fear! They cause faith to win every time! 

As for surrounding me with people who embody faith, one of the people who consistently comes to mind is none other than my husband Travis. Read More

Priceless We Remain...

Self-worth:

When I hear the word self-worth, the first thing I begin to think of is VALUE. What value do you as a person feel you embody? In today's time, this is a dangerous topic because we equate our degrees, marital status, and even things such as being a good homemaker, to be the sum of our worth. So what happens if the marriage fails, or the degree was attained 20 years ago? Do we then believe that our self-worth has diminished? Read More

Journey Forward

Let it begin Daddy...our journey FORWARD!

This is my love letter to you Daddy. I’m grateful for the way you’ve transformed me. We’re definitely not a finished product, but we’re now moving…FORWARD that is! For too long I was stuck on stupid. Stuck on excuses, on fear, on people’s opinions, then all of a sudden I was rescued by your love! Man your love! The way it captivated me, washed me, and renewed me! It helped me let go of my shame. Shame accumulated as a result of living a life of someone I was not…I was counterfeit! But that’s not the way you created me! You created me priceless, bold, unique, strong, and a leader among leaders. So what happened?! Life happened…people happened…loss of focus happened. I want to tell my story of why and how I started on this journey FORWARD!
